Hello and welcome to HCM,
The appearance of dryness and skin colored papules on upper lip suggests that the herpes labialis has spread to the upper lip from lower lip.
The herpes labialis has a natural history and takes 7-10 days to clear.
Using topical treatment helps to clear away infection early.
You need to consult a dermatologist for clinical examination and treatment.
I believe I pealed off my skin after waxing my upper lip. I'm using baby oil and Glysolid cream on the area. Is there anythibg else I can do?
Thanks for your query. Do not worry : the body will repair the skin on its own. Apply any antiseptic cream on the exposed area till healing takes place. There is no requirement of antibiotic ointment. Alternatively, baby oil and Glysolid cream too will suffice.
